Kids in kindergarten through 4th grade are invited to play, explore and learn in our exciting STEAM room. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, and is crucial to a well-rounded 21st century education.  Wonder Ground is a place where we can gain a richer understanding of these topics while having fun.
